My first time at joining in with Five Minute Friday...so here goes...
....a life without choices, a life where I knew what would be my future,minute by minute.
Sometimes when I am faced with too many or with difficult choices I long to have a life of no choice.
I want to be guided, put on the correct path.
I yearn for someone to tell me what to do.
Isn't it strange that when I feel I am being forced or pushed into a corner over a decision that I need to make that I react so strongly.
I kick and push and push to expand my boundaries and let me search, explore, consider more options, more choices, another footpath.
Gradually over the last few weeks I have come to accept the latest choice I have made concerning my immediate future.
It has hurt.
I am grieving over the loss of 'being useful...of making a difference in people's lives'
Thank you Lord I have not had to make this decision in isolation.
Thank you for guiding me so gently, for whispering confirmation,for comforting me....for letting me make that choice.
Imagine a world without His love and His gift of freewill.
